Nike FC Cup Brings Football Fans Together

November 10, 2022   Scout Seshimo   Announcements

 

Football Will Bring Us Together

In all of history, there has never been a sport as big as football. Nations gather together in raucous rebellion, while only one team can claim the ultimate victory. That same spirit lives on in Rocket League, and now everyone can have a taste of the world’s most popular sport with the Nike FC Cup Limited Time Event! 

Starting November 17, players can complete in-game challenges to unlock Nike Federation and Global Decals for dozens of countries. Football takes over the Item Shop with multiple Item Packs, including the Nike CR7 Pack inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo’s Mercurial boot. We’ll also introduce Fan Clash: Nike FC Cup, an international competition where players compete together for their country's glory and exclusive placement rewards.

Then on November 30, we come back for the second half with the Nike FC Showdown Limited Time Mode. The Item Shop will also see a second round of Items, including the Nike FC 2022 Pack


This is a big one, so let's dive in!

First up, the Item Shop! The Nike Next Generation Pack comes with three Decals inspired by three famous Nike boots: Nike Phantom GT - Copper, Nike Tiempo - Copper, and the Nike Air Zoom Mercurial - Copper. Alongside these Octane, Fennec, and Dominus Decals, players will also receive the Nike FC 2022 Goal Explosion. The pack will cost 1100 Credits, while each Item is also available for individual purchase.

Football has created some of the world’s biggest sports celebrities, and now you can sport the same style as Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo! The Nike CR7 Pack comes with the Nike Air Zoom Mercurial - CR7 Decal and a matching Nike Air Zoom Mercurial - CR7 Player Banner, all for 300 Credits.

Alongside this Item Shop haul comes Challenge Rewards! To unlock 40+ Decals from around the world, you'll need to complete challenges by diving into games of Chaos, Dropshot, Snow Day, and Hoops! You’ll also be able to get a Golden Egg that unlocks an Item from Champions Series 1 through 4. 

Both the Nike FC Challenges and Item Shop Items will be available from November 17 to December 6.

Fan Clash: Nike FC Cup

Football brings nations across the world together, and so does Fan Clash: Nike FC Cup! By signing up and scoring points for your country of choice, you can earn rewards on a massive scale.

 

Step 1 - Sign Up

Starting November 17, sign up at the Fan Clash: Nike FC Cup site. Once you’ve picked your team, it’s time to start dreaming about those rewards! As soon as you sign in, you’ll already unlock the “Footy Fanatic” Player Title.

 

Step 2 - Earn Points

Once you’ve locked in your favorite team, start playing Rocket League matches to earn points! Remember to check your Fan Clash page as you play⁠—you’ll be able to track your team's progress on the Global Leaderboard. 

Every goal, save, and assist you score throughout the event will add points to your team’s global total, with point normalization making things fair for bigger or smaller countries. Remember: it’s not how many players you have; it’s how hard they work!

 

Step 3 - Claim Victory

Finally, you’ll earn Placement Rewards based on how many points your country earns throughout Fan Clash: Nike FC Cup. Higher placements earn higher rewards, so do your best to push your country to the top of the leaderboard! Fan Clash: Nike FC Cup will run from November 17 at 9 a.m. PST (5 p.m. UTC)  until November 30, 6:00 p.m. PST (December 1 at 2 a.m.)

Nike FC Showdown

Welcome to Champions Field (Nike FC)! This pink and blue Arena will be home to Nike FC Showdown, a Limited Time Mode that achieves the unthinkable—combining cars and football!

This isn’t the Soccar you’re familiar with though. In Showdown, two teams square off with a Nike Ball, modified Mutator Settings, and intense 4v4 action. The newly designed Ball will curve and cut through the air depending on how you hit it, with a higher max speed and low bounce settings. These changes mean the ball will spend more time close to the ground, and it will be easier to dribble with the front of your car instead of the hood. Nike FC Showdown will be playable from November 30 to December 14.
